New Appointment Record Set! Another 3 Day Blinds Luau is in the Offing!

Scott Mendez, VP, Sales, 3 Day BlindsAt around 2 pm yesterday, cheers erupted in the appointment setting department at the 3 Day Blinds‘ Support Center in Irvine, CA and quickly spread throughout the office.  Their news? 

We had just set another one-week record for the number of free design consultation appointments scheduled!  Since we serve our clients by helping them select the perfect custom blinds, shades or shutters for their windows in their homes and businesses, this is a key metric we look at when measuring our success.

“We took a moment to celebrate… rather loudly, I must admit… but the phones kept ringing, so we quickly quelled our excitement, slipped back into our standard friendly and professional mode, and continued to help our clients schedule appointments,” said Rosa Aguirre, who supervises the appointment setting department. 

Scott Mendez, VP of Sales, on the other hand, spent about 15 minutes making sure everyone else was wearing a Hawaiian Lei and properly celebrating!  “In this economy, the double digit growth we are experiencing, especially in our industry, is unheard of,” said Scott.  “Our appointment and sales growth is the product of referrals from happy 3 Day Blinds clients, the relationships and reputations our 200 Design Consultants are building in their communities, our great product selection, the warranty promises we make, our solid brand, and the sophisticated marketing tactics we are employing.”

Greg Bibas, SVP of Marketing, summed it up a little more succinctly: “”Hau’oli” means “Happy” in Hawaiian.  That describes every team member at 3 Day Blinds, and evidently, our clients as well!”

If you’re ready for new window treatments and to experience our unparalleled service, just give us a call at 877-614-3329 to schedule your appointment, or schedule online.  Your local 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant will meet with you at your convenience, make the perfect product recommendation, provide guaranteed measurements and arrange for professional installation – all in one visit!

Meanwhile, stay tuned to read about our Luau!

Mini Blinds: We Still Love ‘Em After All These Years!

Mini Blinds by 3 Day Blinds

Custom Mini Blinds were the first product made by 3 Day Blinds when the company started back in 1978 in Laguna Hills, CA.  They put us on the map when our founder proved that he could produce them quickly at a lower price, and the company soon expanded beyond Orange County and gained a foothold in most major markets across the country.

Now, 37 years later, when we analyze our sales, Mini Blinds are a modest single digit percentage of the total dollars, but a much larger percentage of the products we ship.  Why is this?  The answer is because they are so darned affordable!  Our custom mini blinds in our best-selling size (36″x60″) start at an amazingly low price of just $55!

Gail Connelly, 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant“At 3 Day Blinds, we offer a great range of mini blinds with today’s best-selling colors and 3 different styles that offer a host of features,” says Gail Connolly, a top 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant serving Dallas, North Dallas and Highland Park, TX.  “Mini Blinds offer fantastic light control and a look that fits well in homes from modern to traditional.  They offer an outstanding custom window treatment solution at an unbelievable price, and are the perfect option for my clients who want custom blinds, but are on a budget.  Mini Blinds are an important part of our product assortment, which includes over 1000 blinds, shades and shutters, all of which can be made to our clients’ exact specifications. Like most of our products, they can be made and shipped within 24 hours, installed within 3 business days and are backed by a Lifetime Warranty.”

We love Mini Blinds for many reasons.  At one time they were our only product, but these days so many of our customers find 3 Day Blinds by searching for Mini Blinds on the internet.  And each Mini Blind sale brings us a new customer that we know we are going to have for life!

If you’re ready to outfit your windows with 3 Day Blinds custom-made Mini Blinds (or Faux Wood Blinds, Flexcell Honeycomb Blinds, Vertical Blinds, Vinyl Blinds, Wood Blinds, Honeycomb Shades, Horizontal Sheer Shades, Pleated Shades, Roller Shades, Roman Shades, Shutters or Woven Wood Shades), please give us a call at 877-614-3329 to schedule your free in-home design consultation.  Gail (or one of her 200 fellow Designers) will come to your home at your convenience, will help you select the perfect product for your windows, take guaranteed measurements, provide an on-the-spot quote and arrange for a professional installation!  

Customer Recommendation for Tanu Singh

Hello Tanu!

I just wanted to thank you most sincerely for all your time and help getting new window treatments for our entire upstairs.  You really took a lot of time to make sure we chose quality treatments at the absolute best prices.  It was refreshing to deal with a sincere salesperson who kept in contact even after we paid!  Our blinds are up now and look really stunning.  I hope I meet a lot of people who are looking for new blinds because I will tell them I have the perfect person!  Thank you again Tanu.

Dear Michelle,

Your kindness – not to mention your professional help towards my need for blinds was simply one word – OUTSTANDING!  The installer was also kind and polite… he did a GREAT job & he was also blown away by seeing my boxing collection here & took several pictures!  I will say that I would recommend ANYBODY to “3 Day Blinds” after what I “personally” experienced – THANK YOU!
